The new Pablo & Valentina tea-room in Lille opened in January 2017; it was fitted out by the Piks Design agency with whom Ateliers Sansone has already collaborated for the creation of the furniture items.
Ateliers Sansone was called in to bring touches of marble to various strategic design elements. On the wall where the items on sale are displayed (jams, honey, tea, wine, etc.), the display shelves are backed with White Carrara marble.
This “open-book” marble clad wall is made from a single block that has been cut to fit. The pieces have been rearranged as they were in the original block, allowing its natural veining to remain clearly visible.
The shop counter where pastries and cakes are displayed has been transformed by its association with another work surface in white Carrara marble.
To contrast with all of this white a large marble work surface in black Spanish Nero Marquina marble has been fitted against the window frames that open onto the street facing the Treille Church.
